Tomato Plants

Fruit Production

Anonymous added on July 30, 2012 | Answered

I have a container vegetable garden and tomato and pepper plants that look very healthy with good numbers of blossoms, but not many turning into fruit. I have planted white and purple flowers nearby to attract bees, but still the majority of blossoms simply turn brown and fall off. The ones that do turn to fruit seem to be stunted. I feed plants once a week. Should I increase feeding?

This is caused by poor pollination. High temps and humidity play a hige factor with this, as it can make pollination more difficult. You may need to hand pollinate.
